For a Gold Nugget More

As you may have guessed, this is a pastiche on that more wonderful of movie genres, the spaghetti western.  An old timer finds what he has been looking for all his life but unfortunately for him his discovery has not gone unnoticed by a vicious looking reprobate and - of all things - a young bison. Who will end up with the gold nugget in the end?

Complete with an ending which you may not quite be expecting, this stop motion animated short by Antoine Kinget and Remi Parisse may not get your vote if you are attuned to the more, well let’ s say cheerful, endings of American animation. You can get a lot more information about the making of this short at its website.
